Monday night, Dec. 19, saw the final city council meeting of 2016 in Castlegar. As is customary, mayor Lawrence Chernoff announced the councillor’s committee appointments for the coming year.

The appointments are relevant to residents insofar as they help members of the community determine where best to direct questions, comments or complaints.

“It’s a lengthy decision in which many factors come into play,” Chernoff said. “I can tell you, this year, I went through about 21 drafts. It’s impacted by work schedules, availability, personal qualities, and more. It translates into how well we communicate with the community, and that’s important.”
